It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure your safety at work, and employers should ensure that seatbelts and other safety precautions are both in place and in use where appropriate. Where your employer fails in this obligation, you could be entitled to compensation.
According to the Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ORSA), it is estimated that between one-quarter and one-third of reported road casualties occur in road accidents involving someone who was driving, riding or otherwise using the road for work purposes. We have considerable experience in bringing successful cases on behalf of our clients who have been involved in crashes and collisions in the workplace, regardless of the complexity of the circumstances surrounding the accident.
